A new study has shown that people who regularly eat oranges are less likely to develop macular degeneration than people who do not eat oranges. Researchers interviewed more than 2,000 Australian adults aged over 50 and followed them over a 15-year period.
Daniel Miller, M.D., retina specialist and chief medical officer of Cincinnati Eye Institute, reminds patients, “The main recommendation from the AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) is to eat a well balanced, healthy diet, obtain regular exercise, and if you have macular degeneration, take the recommended AREDS or AREDS2 vitamin supplements.”
